April 14, 2022 – Sierra Madre Girls Softball Association’s Spring Season is wrapping up regular games, which will seed 
the brackets for playoffs. The Spring Tournament games will be played during the last two weeks of April, leading up 
to championship games and closing day ceremonies at Heasley Field on Sunday, May 1. 

The past two weeks at Heasley Field have been exciting as we get ready for the Tournament. Two months of hard 
work and skills development in practices and games have paid off as they teams are cohesive, making great plays and 
having fun at the same time. 

Recent highlights include:

April 3 – Diamond Dynamites 5 vs. Flaming Hawks 5In what was a very exciting game, Rylie McKenzie pitched 3 wonderful innings and Stella Majich came in to get 2 
clutch strikeouts in the final inning. Isabella Frayeh and Kira Meakin each had a big hit to spark a rally for the Flaming 
Hawks and all of the girls did a great job at the plate, in the field, and running the bases. 

April 8 – Flaming Hawks 10 vs. Pink Lightning 11Pink Lightning fought hard but lost by one run on a walk-off hit in an exciting Friday night game! There were big hits 
from Pippa Novak, Stella Melnyk, Sage Cramer, Madeleine Loera, Melanie Figueroa, and Abigail Sanchez that all led 
to runs for the Pink Lightning. Sarah Bates was again outstanding behind the plate and Natalie Miranda played an 
all-around great game getting hits and pitching well. 

The Flaming Hawks were able to pull off their thrilling victory behind the great catching and hitting of Emilia 
Turnquist. The Flaming Hawks also received timely hits from Avery Hourihan, Addison Arnerich, Isabella Frayeh, 
and Charlotte Lundeen. The Flaming Hawks also made several great plays in the field, led by Delaney Tavera's great

April 10 – Panthers 3 vs. Killer Bees 5Powered by a five-run first inning and a double by Marlo Gomez, the Killer Bees held on for their 7th straight win.

two scoreless innings and had six strikeouts—way to go!

contribute to the win.
